Lemons. Lemons. Lemons.
Lemons are a MUST in any mum’s kitchen, if we do say so ourselves. From easing constipation symptoms, fighting throat infections and even assisting with weight loss, the health benefits that come with lemons are enormous. Not to mention they are beyond TASTY in recipes and treats.
So, when this mum’s lemon tree was taken over by the yellow-citrus fruit – she was more determined than ever to head to the kitchen and whip up NUMEROUS treats using lemons as the STAR ingredient.
30 lemons and 300 SNACKS later
You’ll never BELIEVE how many snacks Natalie was able to bake with just 30 lemons.
Natalie reveals, “It’s amazing what you can do with just 30 lemons! 300 serves of snacks in fact!
I’ve recently baked my way through these lemons and now have snacks for the whole family to enjoy (for longer than I can imagine).”

And what’s the perk of having so many treats on hand?
“And having healthy snacks on hand means I won’t reach for the bad stuff.
